Mostly Margate photos dated either 1899 1900 1901 1902 or 1903 there are a few other Thanet ones and Broadstairs before and after the war.

 This is the rest of the album that I published the other day, which I managed to date to between 1899 and 1903 based on the Ramsgate pictures in the album at http://thanetonline.blogspot.co.uk/2016/08/ramsgate-pictures-all-from-one.html

The Ramsgate ones show the tower of the Granville lowered so after 1899 but the pavilion not year built so before 1903, I wonder if anyone who knows what was built when in Margate can narrow it down a bit more.

My bookshop is very busy at the moment you can see the books that went out today here http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2016/08/broadstairs-1949-in-bookshop.html

My new Broadstairs publication the Broadstairs guide for 1949 – buy in now here http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2016/08/broadstairs-1949-in-bookshop.html or come into the bookshop, but not on Thursdays, has a peculiar social history facet.

This is because I also publish the same but different guide for 1937, see http://michaelsbookshop.com/catalogue/sunny_broadstairs.htm so wee have the same but different guides with The Second World War.

So not a major historical document, but the subtle differences between the two guides somehow managed to express effects of the war that I couldn’t put into words, lots of small social changes, worth look if you get the chance.

The way things are going I will have to take on an A level student for an hour or so after school, so if you are going to start A levels next term and are interested in bookselling and publishing you can always drop me an email michaelchild@aol.com

Pictures will expand if clicked on, but the main point of them is that we know the date they were taken.
